Bug on getResourcePaths implementation for ServletContext class.

The getResoucePaths return incorrect data.

From JavaDoc you can read:

public java.util.Set getResourcePaths(java.lang.String path)

Returns a directory-like listing of all the paths to resources within the web application whose longest sub-path matches the supplied path argument.

Paths indicating subdirectory paths end with a '/'.

The returned paths are all relative to the root of the web application and have a leading '/'.

For example, for a web application containing









getResourcePaths("/catalog/") returns {"/catalog/index.html", "/catalog/products.html", "/catalog/offers/"}.

Instead with SAP NetWeaver Sneak Preview 6.40 SR1 (6.40 PatchLevel 87289.311)

getResourcePaths("/catalog/") returns {"index.html", "products.html", "offers/"}.

and this is not correct.

You can test it with this simple JSP





java.util.Set vSet = getServletContext().getResourcePaths("/WEB-INF/");

Object[] vArr = vSet.toArray();

for(int i = 0; i < vArr.length; i++)


out.println(vArr<i> + "<br>");





i don't know if there are other place where report this bug.

I cannot access to the site because i'm not a customer or business partner.

    Hi Roberto,

    this is a serious violation of the servlet specification. I also checked this for 6.20 (even if not officially servlet 2.3), same result.

    I have opened an OSS message (002007974700000619382005).

    Hope it'll help,
